When I first moved here from California, it was a challenge to find a decent burrito. Thankfully, the past six years have been blessed with my husband’s Mexican cooking. We bring canned tomatillos back in our luggage! But recently Cork has had a resurgence of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. Here are a few places to get you in the mood for a fiesta (or siesta).
El Banditos (update: closed May 2014)
Of course, there are grocery options too! Black beans are available at Quay Co-op as well as the first stall on the left when entering the English Market on the fountain side. Dried black beans are available in the gluten-free speciality food aisle at Tesco on Paul Street. And at festivals, keep an eye out for Brendan’s Veggie Burritos and Burgers.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I’ll leave you with a photo of American-style crispy corn tacos and nachos.
